    Default Joe Hill, Author

    An introduction by way of shamelessly plagiarizing from Dolan's (a TDT.com member) Wikipedia entry:

    Joe Hill is the pen name of Joseph Hillstrom King (born 1971), an American writer of horror and other fiction. Hill is the second child of the authors Stephen and Tabitha King. He has an older sister Naomi, and a younger brother Owen who is also a writer.

    Joe Hill is the past recipient of the Ray Bradbury Fellowship. He has also received the William L. Crawford award for best new fantasy writer in 2006, the A.E. Coppard Long Fiction Prize for "Better Than Home" and the World Fantasy Award for Best Novella for "Voluntary Committal". His stories have appeared in a variety of magazines, such as Subterranean Magazine, Postscripts and The High Plains Literary Review, and in many anthologies, including The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror (ed. Stephen Jones), and The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror (ed. Ellen Datlow, Kelly Link & Gavin Grant).

    His first book, 20th Century Ghosts (PS Publishing), showcases fourteen of his short stories and was the recipient of the Bram Stoker Award for Best Fiction Collection, together with the British Fantasy Award for Best Collection and Best Short Story for "Best New Horror".

    His first novel, Heart-Shaped Box, became #10 on the New York Best Seller list on February 23, 2007. It was published by William Morrow/HarperCollins in February 2007 and by Victor Gollancz Ltd in March 2007.

    Simultaneous to these two above cited editions, a limited edition of Joe Hill's debut novel was also released by Subterranean Press. It is perhaps a reflection of the success and fame which the future may hold for Hill to note that this limited edition sold out several months prior to publication.

    A Picture of the Deluxe Edition:



    This is going to be released in a trade edition soon, and I suggest picking it up. Personally, for me, I really liked this collection over his first novel The Heart Shaped Box.

    I've got the start of my (what I hope to be extensive) collection with an inscribed U.S. HSB, a flatsigned U.S. HSB, and a UK slipcased, limited HSB.

    I am always looking for MORE! I can't wait for 20CG to be released (again).

    He got me a personalised HSB too and sent pics of Joe Hill signing it.

    I've also got the s/l UK HSB, the 20th CG HC signed by JH and Christopher Golden limited, the HC signed only by him, and I have the trade paper back on it's way to me now.

    i'm trying but i can't keep the book open and back far enough away to get a pic that isn't a big blurry mess, and the batteries are too low so the flash won't work. i'll get something figured out soon though, i think i can have them here tomorrow.

    the inside is very cool did you just want a photo of the limitation page or some of the pictures in the book too?

    Next week, I will try to post pictures of a couple chapbooks that Joe did awile back, my favorite being Better Than Home.
    Captain, Road Prison 36 : What we've got here is... failure to communicate. Some men you just can't reach. So you get what we had here last week, which is the way he wants it... well, he gets it. I don't like it any more than you men.

    Dragline : Nothin'. A handful of nothin'. You stupid mullet head. He beat you with nothin'. Just like today when he kept comin' back at me - with nothin'.
    Luke : Yeah, well, sometimes nothin' can be a real cool hand

    Both would be cool. Honestly it is something I want - but without actually seeing it, I have no idea what I would be buying! Ha!

    Is it the 1-200 or 201-500?

    of of the first 200. i can't say i'm positive, but i think it's the same as the 201-500's, just with extra stuff in the back.

    and i'm still trying to get pictures, but i have to wait for someone to come over and hold it open for me and it looks like he's gonna get here pretty late.

    Default Cody's Books, Berkeley, CA: Sat., March 10, 2007

    This isn't new news, but I'm going to post some stuff here in the Joe Hill thread anyway - for posterity's sake.

    On the evening of Saturday, March 10th, I got together with my friend Jerome in Berkeley at a pub called Barclay's, a place I'd never been. Lots of good beer on tap.

    So after hitting the pub, Jerome and I went over to another part of town to attend a booksigning. We were just over an hour early, but they hadn't even set up yet.

    Here I am at Cody's Books in Berkeley looking like a squirrel with a mouth of nuts, but I'm actually saying something along the lines of, "I want this poster!"



    Well, because Cody's wasn't too busy, we figured we had some time to kill before things started at the bookstore.

    So we walked around until we found another bar, the Cafe Rouge.

    We went back to Cody's after the bar. Guess who we met before his reading.

    We talked to him a little. He is very friendly and approachable. Then he had to an interview with the local UC Berkeley student radio station.

    After he came inside, we talked to him some more and got another pic with him.

    We sat in the front row. Joe read from Chapter 10 of Heart Shaped Box and then did a Q&A.

    Then we walked and talked with him over to the other part of the store where he was going to do the signing.

    Here he is signing one of Jerome's books. Then he signed mine.

    Ok, so we weren't just the first ones in line. We went and put the books in the car and came back in, so we were also the last ones in line.

    We sweet talked a nice lady at the bookstore into giving us their two promotional standalone posters. Joe was nice enough to sign them for us.

    Joe and Jerome:



    Afterward we walked down to the Cafe Rouge for another beer while we waited for Jerome's wife to stop by and pick him up.

    Overall it was a fabulous evening. Thanks to Jerome for remembering to bring a camera.
